Scientists from the ICB have developed a program that is able to analyze enormous gene expression datasets. The software, named Scanpy, is a candidate for analyzing the Human Cell Atlas, and has recently been published in ‘Genome Biology’.

Scanpy is the first software that scales comprehensive analysis tasks of single-cell gene-expression datasets with a broad range of machine-learning and statistical methods to more than one million cells.
